ity, of course, for us to actual digging,

nor graves. It's a pity, too, for he
might be of Borne use in the world
if he would do either.
THE CASE t)F MR. ELDRIDGE.
We are sorry to see the Hon. Alma
Eldridgo Join the feeble and furry cry
that there la no church Interference in
politics in this State. Mr. Eldrldgc is
himeelf a conspicuous Instance to the
contrary of his present professions.
Hla nomination In 189S was a complete
proof of such Interference. He was nom
inated as a weak man. because he was a
weak man, to make the run ugalnst B.
H. Roberts, who was the church favor
ite that year. The Mormon delegates
(especially tho.e from Utah county in a
body) went outside tho convention hall
at tho Grand Opera House, In this
city and earnestly canvassed the sit
uation. Tho idea wns to beat Mr. O. J. Salis
bury, tho Gentiio. To bo suro, Mr. Salis
bury was not pushing his candidacy; he
was quite indifferent about the nomina
tion, not caring for it personally, and
no doubt, as the shrewd observer that
he Is, sensing the situation and knowing
that It would be a hard fight and prob
ably a losing ono against the church
But tho church managors were taking
no chances. A Gentile candidate would
make trouble; he would most certainly
raise the polygamy issue against Mr.
Roberts, put the church leaders on the
defensive against the charge of broken
faith and favor to a polygamist; the
Isaue onco raised, the possibility of a
defeat for Mr. Roberts was easily on
the cards, for thousands, both Mormon
and Gentile, would refuse to vole for nn
avowed polygamist. could that Issue
once get Into the campaign.
It was necessary to the church poli
ticians, therefore, that they should have
both ends of the string in their own
hands; that they should control both
the so-called Democratic and the so
called Republican campaigns, so that
nothing disturbing In the way of an ob
jection to a polygamist, as such, nor in
the way of charging broken pledges or
a determination to revive the old Brig
ham Young declaration that "we would
yet cram polygamy down the throats of
the American people," could get into the
In order, therefore, that the church
should have the control throughout, and
see that things were run to Its taste on
both sides, it was necessary that a Mor
mon be nominated, at the convention of
1S98, and not a Gentile.
Accordingly, as stated, tho Utah coun
ty delegates took counsel together in the
alley east of the Grand, the open and
avowed purpose among them being to
"beat Salisbury," and nominate a Mor
mon. They agreed to support Eldrldgc,
and to pass the word to others of the
brethren who were delegates, to do the
So Eldrldgc was nominated and by the
very church Influence he now declares
does not exist, and has not existed. He
was at once the beneficiary and the vic
tim of that Influence; the beneficiary in
getting the nomination, and the victim
In being sacrificed at the polls.
We are not sure that Mr. Eldrldgc
knew of the facts herein related at the
time, but he could hardly fail to have
known of them afterward. They consti
tute a complete care of the existence of
the very thing which he declares does
not exist. We, in behalf of the Ameri
can party, return thanks to him for
emerging from his political obscurity
long enough to say the thing which
gives opportunity to narrate the facts in
THE FRUIT-GROWERS' PftOPO JITIONS.
Wc trust that the, Salt Lake County
Horticultural society's efforts toward
preventing a glut In the fruit market by
the establishment of a canning factory,
will be heartily seconded by the busi
ness interests, of this city. With a
canning factory here of sufficient ca
pacity, equipped to take care of what
ever was offered of fruit In Its season,
the market would be assured, and the
fruit raiser could go ahead with con
fidence, not only in cleaning up his
orchard and bringing it into Its full
bearing condition, but In enlarging it
and adding desirable fruits and va
rieties. The further propositions of the so
ciety to see that proper methods of
packing and marketing arc adopted and
put into general user that improved
processes In drying, evaporating, and
bottling be practiced, and that a fruit
growers' union to further ends and also
the interests of tho raisers of fruit,
are all in the line of progress and get
ting matters in proper shape for the
reaping of the fullest advantages to
All these things should be helped by
the business men gonerally, and by
every one who can do bo. The society
should never cease pressing its points,
and should be persistent in getting the
fruit men together, so that they will
all be working to the same ends, and
so that when they make any move,
it will count. Success to them in this
and every other good work.
President Roosevelt's review of tho
General Slocum case and his findings
in condemnation of ofllclals blame
worthy In that awful horror, will be
-accepted by the country as tho rlgh
thing; and his conclusion will be en
dorsed by th public. His words of
censure against the offending officials,
and- his peremptory direction to re
move them from office, were severe;
but It is a case for severity, and the
public will bo glad to see that we have
in the White House a man who has
the nerve and the ability to administer
the appropriate correction. It is good
and hcartsome to see.
TODAY TO KbGISTtR.
This Is the last day in the present
month which affords an opportunity for
voters to register.
No ono wants to loso tho opportunity
to vote on the great issues of tho Presi
dential election, and the overwhelming
issue in Utah, the determination to
stop church Interference in and domi
nation of political affairs.
This evil cannot possibly be stopped
unless the people come out and vote to
But they cannot vote at all unless
they are registered.
Be sure, therefore to register today,
and insuro your privilege at the ballot
box on tho Sth day of November next.
Somothlng might happen to prevent
you from registering on tho 1st and 2nd
days of November, which will be abso
lutely tho last chance.
THE IRRIGATION CONGRESS.
Tho official call Is out for the meeting
of the National Irrigation Congress at
El Paso next month, November 15th to
ISth, inclusive. It io a congress of great
Importance to all the arid region, and
should be lllled with delegates from all
the States and Territories interested In
Uie Governmental operations under the
The Governors of all the States and
Territories are members of the congress
ex-olllclo, and they are authorized to
appoint each ten delegates. The mem
bers of State and Territorial Irrigation
Commissions are also members of the
Congress. Two delegates may be ap
pointed by tho Mayors of each city of
less than 25,000 people; by every
chamber of commerce, commercial club,
or any regularly organized Irrigation,
agricultural, or horticultural society or
society of engineers; by any agricultural
college or university thnt has a choir
of hydraulic englnecering or forestry;
and Mayors of cities of over 25.000 neo-
plo may appoint four delegates.
The great work under way by the
Government makes this Congress the
great body of Interest to the whole arid
region of America; that work will
eventually call for the expenditure of
fully fifty million dollars, perhaps more.
Whije it is true that the Government
engineers In the Irrigation work are not
under the direction of this Congress,
it Is true that they attend every meet
ing of It, and take part in the proceed
ings. It Is also true that their presence
and participation constitute a mutually
educating force that Is Invaluable In Its
good effect on what Is done; It Is
a mutually educating force that is in
every way commendable.
Wo trust that Utah's delegation may
bo well filled at the coming congress.
Many important recommendations will
be sprung on that Congress, and most
of them will need to be voted down.
There is nothing quite so important in
a body like that as preventing the cap
ture of It for somo scheme or making It
the ally of some person or some private
The Utali vote squelched a good
many such schemes at the Congress In.
Ogden last year, and we look to .It to do
the same this year at El Paso.
Judge King has been letting the cat
cut of the bag from time to time dur
ing the past years, in charging and ad
mitting tho exercise of church dom
ination In politics. He Is continuing
the same revelations this year. This
course has stirred the Ire of John C.
Graham of the Provo Enquirer, who
lets out on Judge King In the follow
ing editorial revelation:
Judge King talks now In tho very cen
ter?, as he did In American Fork the
other evening, against church lnlluence.
where he once went and took part In dis
banding of tho People's party only to In
vito the voters to sign the Democratic
roll, saying that the Democratic party
was tho eamo as the disbanded party, only
under a different name. The first cam
paign of tho State. In which hp and
James IT. Moylo took such leading parts,
wna simply to show that a citizen of
Utah could not well be a good Mormon
and a good Republican. Democracy and
Mormonlsm were the same In those good
old days of Democratic deception.
Graham and King are both high
priests in the church, and both, no
doubt, know fully what they are talk
ing about. It is always interesting
when we see the brethren telling secrets
about one another's tricks.
Hero is the concluding paragraph of'
an editorial In tho New York Herald:
But Prlnco Bismarck Is nH much out of
date in Germany as Washington or Jef
ferson or other ndvocates of constitu
tionalism nre In the United States, and
as It Is the people that will have to de

German nnd American people may decide
to give absolutism another trial. In case
they should so decide, hla Majesty of
Prussia, who Is very skillful In stage man
agement, ralsht arrange that his corona
tion as Wllhclm I.. Emperor of Germany,
should coincide with a coronation of
Caesar Theodore I. of America, whero

Any one whose vote could possibly
be affected by that sort of frenzied
twaddle, is not fit to have the privilege

War is not without Its humor, after
all. even when the fighting is bloody
and fierce. Thus, tho Russians, after
attracting the attention of the world to
their spectacular advance, and their
purpose-to interpose between the Japan
ese and the Yalu river, thus cutting the
communications of the enemy, and com-'
pletely falling, being thrown back in
bloody repulse, send out word that they
are now engaged in the operation of a
"sagacious retirement." That is a good
phrase, but It would soem that a few
grains of common sense should have
made that "sagacious retirement" whol
ly unnecessary, by refusing to engage In
a bombastic aggressive movement
which was doomed from the first to sin
failure; that was, as a London paper t.
presses It, "tho throw of a desperate

and sometimes ho gets rapid mls-lnfor-matlon,
and wonders why anybody

Just to edify the new comer, let us
give tho facts of .a case which could
not occur anywhere else in the United
States; Tho Dixie Advocate, a Mormon
newspaper, published by Mormons,
stated that President Joseph F. Smith,
In his sermon at St. George, Washing
ton county, recently advised his follow
ers "not to sell land to Gentiles, and
not to aid them." Days and weeks
went by; there was no contradiction by
the president himself, nor by his church
organ, nor by the Advocate, which first
published the report.
A copy of the Advocate finally
reached the office of The Tribune, nnd
a prompt exposure was made of the un-Chrlstlan-llke
advice and instruction.
And now the Dixie Advocate comes out
In a long editorial in which' it says that
Its report was made up from the
original notes (presumably steno
graphic notes) taken of the sermon, and
that the word "Gentile" does not ap

The Dixie Advocate willingly throws
Itself into the breach and deliberately
makes itself appear as a falsifier in
order to preserve tho president of its
church from a Just criticism. Presunf
ably the editor of the Advocate has
acted under ecclesiastical direction.
Is it not perfectly apparent that the
paper which will publicly avow itself a
liar at the instance of Its church leador
will counsel its readers to vote or do
anything else which that church leader

STAND BY THE CONSTITUTION.
Judge Parker Is fervid in his protesta
tions for tho upholding of tho Consti
tution, and rightly so; but it Is Idlq to
mako special pleas of favoring an In
strument which all revere, and which all
equally obey and uphold.
There Is, In fact, only one portion of
the Fedoral Constitution that Is In any
way Involved In the present campaign;
but though the Democratic candidate,
and his supporters generally, are so loud
in mouth-praise of the Constitution, we
do not find them arrayed In support of
that Instrument on the only question at
Issue. If they were ho arrayed, they
would support the Republican conten

tion forbids discrimination against any
class of voters on account of race or
color. It also provides that where any

members of the class so disfranchised

If it is found that any considerable num
ber of people have been disfranchised,
then the reduction In the representation
of the States so disfranchising, as the
Constitution provides, is called for.
Yet the very persons who are so val
iantly shouting for the Constitution, bit
terly denounce tho Republicans because
they propose to take stens to enforce thp-
Constitution In this respect. If the
Democrats were sincere in their pro
fessions of devotion to the Constitution,
they would join with the Republicans in
their demand for the enforcement of
this provision. That they do not so Join,
proves that the Democratic profession
of love for and devotion to the Consti
tution is the usual Democratic sham
To cry out for the Constitution, and

Is characteristically Democratic, and
The Pittsburg AutomobJla Club has
taken action that will probably bo de
cisive against the automobile "scorch

mendable from the standpoint of good
citizenship, but It. will have a tendency
